Rydox - Delta EP[phoke26]

by Rydox

Published July 7, 2004


While Rydox shared two single tracks with the Phonocake listeners at his last release (see Phonocake release #11), he is now presenting an entire EP with seven tracks, developing into a well-rounded and self-contained work during the course of 25 minutes.

Four "delta"s, or one delta split into four, work as a connecting element for the three further tracks, meandering and spreading between them, similar to a river delta, ever-changing and spreading on its way to the sea, so that each direction of the water develops a different character, depending on its individual journey. Those deltas introduce, lead over and, consequently, lead out again, they maintain the atmosphere and serve as a prospect to what is to come and what has been, while they also function as autonomous pieces.

The highlight is reached with "Delta 03" and the following track: the thoughtful and calm, almost closed overall mood, dominating the tracks up to this point (and being supported by the tracks' titles), changes into a something more monumental, darker and eventually more arcane. "Too much traffic, too much to consume" is both mysterious and lively, the cause not solely being the track's diffuse voice samples.

Subject: The minimalist approach to sound
This music is an ambient mood setter. You are guided with a series of tracks through a paradox of nothingness and enlightenment.
